Changes In Form 16 For The Financial Year 2018-19

Form 16 is the annual salary TDS (tax deducted at source ) certificate issued by an employer to employee. It consists of 2 parts, Part A and Part B. Part A contains the employer, employee and employment details such as PAN, address, summary of tax deducted and deposited quarterly, etc. Part B consists of the details of income from salary, allowances exempt and deductions claimed.

The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has notified changes to Form 16 for the financial year 2018-19. Part B has been amended to include details about the allowances exempt under section 10 such as house rent allowance, leave travel concession, etc and deductions allowed under Chapter VI-A from section 80C to 80U of the Income Tax Act. The new format of Form 16 is made effective from May 12, 2019. Therefore, employers issuing Form 16 for the financial year 2018-19 will have to issue them in the new format.

Changes To Form 16

Under the new format of Form 16, Part B will contain information about the exempt allowances under section 10 namely, house rent allowance, leave travel concession, leave encashment, gratuity, etc.

Part B will also contain information about the deductions allowed under Chapter VI-A namely, section 80C – payments made towards life insurance premium, tuition fees for children, section 80CCD – contribution to pension scheme, section 80D – medical insurance premium, section 80E – interest paid on loan taken for higher education, section 80G – donations etc.
Impact on ITR filing

ITR-1

Salaried individuals resident in India can file their returns in ITR-1 for total income up to Rs 50 Lakh. Such individuals can report income from salary, one house property, income from other sources and agricultural income up to Rs 5,000 in the ITR-1 form.
The ITR-1 form requires broad details of the components of income from salary i.e., salary, perquisites and profits in lieu of salary. And a complete break-up of allowances exempted under section 10 and deductions under Chapter VI-A as mentioned above.
Taxpayers will be able to get this information from the Form 16 issued under the new format. If you use an online platform to file your ITR, these details can be automatically populated to your ITR, minimising your effort and helping you e-file accurately.

ITR-2

Salaried individuals who are not eligible to file their return in ITR-1 can file their return in ITR-2. Specifically, resident individuals having total income exceeding Rs 50 Lakh, Non-resident individuals and Individuals who are Director in any company or invested in unlisted equities have to file their return in ITR-2.

Salaried individuals who earn income from business or profession are required to file either ITR-3 or ITR-4.

In the filing under ITR-2, taxpayers have to submit complete break-up of the details of various components of salary furnishing the specified amounts falling under salary, perquisites and profits in lieu of salary. This information can be obtained from the annexure to Form 16 provided by an employer. A screen-shot of a typical example of the annexure is provided below:
  • In addition to the above, the details of allowances and deductions have to be furnished similar to the disclosure required under ITR-1.
  • Taxpayers have to provide employer-wise details in case of salary received from more than one employer in a financial year.
  • As discussed here, taxpayers who will receive the new format of Form 16 must ensure their tax filing is accurate for salary-related information as per new ITR forms for the AY 2019-20.

Posting of husband and wife at the same station - Dated 23.08.2004

F.NO.28034/9/2009-Estt.(A)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
(Department of Personnel and Training)
North Block,
New Delhi,
Dated the 30.09.2009
OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Posting of husband and wife at the same station.

In view of the utmost importance attached to the enhancement of women's status in all walks of life and to enable them to lead a normal family life as also to ensure the education and welfare of the ·children, guidelines were issued by DOP&T in O.M No. 28034/7/86-Estt.(A) dated 3.4.86 and No.28034/2/97-Estt.(A) dated 12.6.97 for posting of husband and wife who are in Government service, at the same station. Department had on 23.8.2004 issued instructions to all Mins/Deptts. to follow the above guidelines in letter and spirit.

2. In the context of the need to make concerted efforts to increase representation of women in Central Government jobs, these guidelines have been reviewed to see whether the instructions could be made mandatory. It has been decided that when both spouses are in same Central Service or working in same Deptt. and if posts are available, they may mandatorily be posted at the same station. It is also necessary to make the provisions at Paras 3(iv) and (vi) of the O.M. dated 3.4.86 stronger as it is not always necessary that the service to which the spouse with longer service belongs has adequate number of posts and posting to the nearest station by either of the Department may become necessary.

3. On the basis of the 6th CPC Report, Govt. servants have already been allowed the facility of Child Care Leave which is admissible till the children attain 18 years of age. On similar lines, provisions of O.M. dated 12.6.97 have been amended.

4. The consolidated guidelines will now be as follows;-

(i) where the spouses belong to the same All India Service or two of the
All India Services, namely IAS, IPS and Indian Forest Service (Group 'A');
The spouse may be transferred to the same cadre by providing for a cadre transfer of one spouse to the Cadre of the other spouse, on the request of the member of service subject to the member of service not being posted under this process to his/her home cadre. Postings within the Cadre will, of course, fall within the purview of the State Govt.

(ii) Where one spouse belongs to one of the All India Services and the other spouse belongs' to one of the Central Services:

- The cadre controlling authority of the Central Service may post the officer to the station or if there is no post in that station, to the State where the other spouse belonging to the All India service is posted.

(iii) Where the spouses belong to the same Central Service:

-The Cadre controlling authority may post the spouses to the same station.
(iv) Where the spouse belongs to one Central Service and the other spouse belongs to another Central Service:

- The spouse with the longer service at a station may apply to his/her appropriate cadre controlling authority and the said authority may post the said officer to the station or if there is no post in that station to the nearest station where the post exists. In case that authority, after consideration of the request, is not in a position to accede to the request, on the basis of non-availability of vacant post, the spouse with lesser service may apply to the appropriate cadre authority accordingly, and that authority will consider such requests for posting the said officer to the station or if there is no post in that station to the nearest station where the post exists.

(v) Where one spouse belongs to an All India Service and the other spouse belongs to a Public Sector Undertaking:

-The spouse employed under the Public Sector Undertaking may apply to the competent authority and said authority may post the said officer to the station, or if there is no post under the PSU in that station, to the State where the other spouse is posted.

(vi) Where one spouse belongs to a Central Service and the other spouse belongs to a PSU:-

-The spouse employed under the PSU 'may apply to the competent authority and the said authority may post the officer to the station or if there is no post under the PSU in that station, to the station nearest to the station where the other spouse is posted. If, however, the request cannot be granted because the PSU has no post in the said station, then the spouse belonging to the Central Service may apply to the appropriate cadre controlling authority and the said authority may post the said officer to the station or if there is no post in that station, to the station nearest to the station where the spouse employed under PSU is posted.

(vii) Where one spouse is employed under the Central Govt. and the other spouse is employed under the state Govt.:-

-The spouse employed under the Central Govt. may apply to the competent authority and the competent authority may post the said officer to the station or if there is no post in that station to the State where the other spouse is posted.

(viii) "The husband & wife, if working in the same Department and if the required level of post is available, should invariably be posted together in order to enable them to lead a normal family life and look after the welfare of their children especially till the children attain 18 years of age. This will not apply on appointment under the central Staffing Scheme. Where only wife is a Govt. servant, the above concessions would be applicable to the Govt. servant.

5. Complaints are sometimes received that even if posts are available in the station of posting of the spouse, the administrative authorities do not accommodate the employees citing administrative reasons. In all such cases, the cadre controlling authority should strive to post the employee at the station of the spouse and in case of inability to do so, specific reasons, therefor, may be communicated to the employee.

6. Although, normal channels of representations/complaints redressal mechanism exist in the Min./Deptts., added safeguards to prevent noncompliance may be provided by ensuring that the complaints against non adherence to the instructions are be decided by the authorities at least one level above the authorities which took the original decision when they are below the level of secretary to the Govt. of India/Head of the PSU concerned and all such representations are considered and disposed off in time bound manner.

7. Hindi version will follow.
